improvised grenades and three jugs of some kind of improvised napalm. they designed the bombs using a remote-controlled robotic device. we could hear a small blast outside here yesterday, and they also worked to preserve what's going to be used as evidence in the case against them as they continue to build that. last night, the fbi left here with what looked like a laptop and hard drive, and they also are saying that they have found evidence inside the apartment that shows this was calculated and deliberate both in the shooting and arming this apartment here with that network of bombs, melissa. >> kristen, thank you so much. undoubtedly, what we have seen since this tragedy as horrific as it is, is still some of the best news you can magiimag manl, that they could disarm that without further loss of life. >> let's bring in craig meeks and jonathan alter. thank you, both, for being here. we're starting to get to a point a couple of days since the tragedy where we can start to think about what it means more broadly. obviously, the president is going to colorado today. going in his role as pres
first read brings it to the top, to the forefront. domenico, thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >>> ben bernanke is warning that the u.s. is head for another recession if the economy is allowed to go off the so-called fiscal cliff at year's end. tim geithner spoke to cnbc's larry kudlow about the lack of answers on capitol hill. >> is this the most chaotic political moment that we've seen? >> i don't know if it's chaotic, but it's stuck and it needs to get unstuck. the most powerful instruments of economic policy that the country needs right now are in the hands of the congress. they're things that the executive branch, be the fed cannot control. those things need to be put to work. >> with me now maryland congressman chris van hollan. thank you so much for joining us. >> good to be with you, luke. >> the washington post on the front page article this morning said, quote, economists say the automatic actions slated to take place at the end of the year, increase in payroll taxes and income tax rates as well as large cuts in domestic and defense spending would tip the country bac
. and the choosers. you are picking the president for the rest of us. so that means you don't have the luxury of political apathy. we, those of us who live in the all too predictable ballot box behavior states, counting on you to get it right. first of all, don't be fooled by the optics that are meant to signal the candidates understand the lives of scalled ordinary people. you know, like buss with folksy tour names. rich guys pretending they ride the bus is not a signal that they understand your lives. neither is rolling up their cleaves or leaving their neck ties at home or eating pancakes or drinking a beer. you know how politicians show you they can relate to your lives? creating policies that make your lives better. pay attention to what they say to you, not just what they are showing you. and numbers like these, totally unacceptable from a pew poll showed 45% of americans are completely clueless about the supreme court's landmark decision on affordable care act. listen, if it's your vote that determines whether or not the rest of us get health care, swing states, i need to you do a litt
what kristen was mentioning to us, the president kicking off his bus tour tomorrow. pawlenty and jindal will bracketing with him and rob portman as well, traveling to new hampshire this weekend. no word if he'll be meeting with romney. where do we stand in terms of the what's the messaging we're looking for going forward as the president goes out there and tries to make the message, put the message out there, that romney is a jobs expovertier? >> of course, the message that the obama campaign has been pushing hard from the very beginning is attacking mitt romney's record at bain capital. and as controversial as that tactic has been from both republicans and democrats, most notably corey booker and bill clinton, that's really the lane that the obama campaign is staying in. and they're sort of attacking bain capital from every angle they can find, their latest political attack ad against romney focused on bain capital investing in companies that ship jobs overseas. and that's -- i think it's a strategy that's really been working for the obama campaign. he's been able to paint romney as so
that on a daily basis. look. we are a great country. we have a sense of community. we used to care for each other and take care of each other and politics never got in the way. if someone lost their job, we all pitched in and took care of them until they got back on their feet. i think we've lost a little of that in the country. and when we band together in tragedies like this, it shows us what america could be. what we have to do is to do something to limit the possibility that something like this happens again. we can never eliminate the possibility but gosh, in the name of those victims, we ought to do something. >> i'm impressed when people turn on the tv and identify with something that happened 3,000 miles away. and they would not have identify with these people except their largely fellow americans. there is something american of ours that goes beyond politics and the sympathy, the real, i've been listening to another networks all week and it is something. >> it is something everybody can relate to. we all go to the movies. might daughter went to "dark night rises" the night before. i had
>> you're going to need a bigger boat >> he good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. president obama has put the issue of tax fairness front and center in this election. speaking in the east room of the white house, the president asked congress to immediately extend the bush tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 a year. >> the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, i don't want to to raise taxes on the middle class. so we should all agree to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what we agree on. right? >> now, i'm going to show you some numbers in a few moments. you can be the judge. this really puts the republicans on the spot. they have to take a position on supporting middle class tax cuts without an equal tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans. now the romney campaign believes the best way to deal with the announcement is to say the president is raising taxes. president obama's response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. here's the problem with the romney camp's statement. it is b
. that line way up there, above all others, that line shows deaths from assault in the u.s. we're an extremely violent country, it's true, but look at this. we're not nearly so violent as we used to be. our assault rate peaked in the late 1970s, and awful events like aurora notwithstanding have been falling continuously ever since. within america, the south is by far the most violent region. it has the most deaths from assault. then comes the wests where the shootings happens followed by the midwest and northeast. thanks again to karen for this chart. also, gun ownership is on the decline. the percentage of american households that say they own a pistol or a shotgun is about half what it was 40 years ago, according to the general social survey. and the most recent numbers from gallup which aren't on the graph have show an uptick in gun ownership. although we don't yet know if that is a statistical blip or the beginning of a reversal in the trip. this map, which we made with data from the new england journal of medicine, compares a number of suicides by gun ownership rates. it's four times as h
. we're not going to ask you. >> i've been around forever and never seen this. >> we republicans used to be concerned back in the '90s when bill clinton would draw even with us on foreign policy. i want to talk really quickly, though, about that republican number because we've got some republicans around this table. let's talk about it. the democratic brand, doing pretty well. you know, it's 40/40. the republican brand upside down, let's talk about what's happened to our party over the past couple of years. >> a lot of erosion, joe. and i think that that's where the danger is for mitt romney, is that obama runs against a republican party rather than mitt romney and ties him to the republican party. >> republican party in washington. >> exactly. >> romney has to find a way to separate himself from the brand and lead the brand rather than follow the brand. >> sorry. >> i'm sorry, mark. >> goes back to convention speech. that's where i think he's going to have to become the leader of the republican party, rather than the congressional wing which is deeply unpopular. >> steve schmidt, i c
all sides. we're nonpartisan. for us, it's about the agenda. what you plan on doing for our communities. in this case, the problem, and the reason the booing happens in the first place, quite frankly, wasn't because he kritdicized the affordable care act. it's because of his characterization of it using barack obama's name along those lines, seemed very disrespectful. soez those kind of things were very problematic. sure, we disagree with him, and no we don't think they're in the best interest of the naacp or the communities we serve. as a matter of fact, what we did with this particular convention is set our policy, and as the press release said, these policies are in opposition in many cases with the policy positions of the naacp. >> mayor nutter, your city is 44% african-american. 18% of registered african-american voters in philadelphia, they lack a voter id. does mitt romney need to answer for these voter id laws? >> well, if he's running for president of the united states, he should certainly have something to say about it. if he cares about the american right to vote
it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney
$25,000 a head. they get a say. the rest of us, no dice. no wonder he says corporations are people. no wonder he thinks we don't need more firefighters. no wonder he makes $10,000 bets. and according to newspaper reports, this event seemed right out of the pages of "the great gatsby." the lawn started at the beach and ran toward the front door for a quarter of a mile. running over brick yards and burning gardens finally reached a house drifting up the side in bright vines as those from the momentum of its run. in fact, the romney event was so unbelievable that i brought in some of our friends from the political subverseties to do a reenactment. you're going to hear things that they said at the fund raiser. these are real quotes. >> i don't think the common person is getting it. we've got the message. but my college kid, the babysitter, the nails ladies, all these people who have the right to vote, they don't get what's going on. i just feel that if you're lower income, one, you're not as educated. two, they don't get how it works. >> right. >> common people don't get it. don't unde
, the president says look, we have such little agreement among us on different side of the the fence, at least we can agree that here's a group of folks who ought to have a n continuation of the bush tax cuts. what's the response. >> two big take aways from today. one on the politics. general election campaign, he's trying to throw a bone to frustrated middle class voters say i'm with you. make sure your rates stay at the rate they are today. but politics on capitol hill are a little different. two years ago, president obama extended the cuts. obama's signalsiling to people capitol hill, but laying out the stakes for that this year. >> why not do that for which tlgd be agreement on. he or she who's making $261,000 a year is going to enjoy the bush tax cut for the first 250 of that. >> you're committing the sin of talking sense. it was a question our pal didn't answer when he gave his response to you. the president saying we can agree on 98%, but republicans are holding that 98% hostage as they did in 2010, knowing that it's very difficult to justify continuing these tax cut bonuses for the rich
, the president says look, we have such little agreement among us on different sides of the fence. at least we can agree here's a group of folks who ought to have a continuation of the bush tax cuts. why don't we at least take care of that piece of business. what's the response? >> two big take aways from today. one on the politics. looks like an attack to the center. in the general election campaign he's trying to throw a bone to frustrated middle class voters saying i'm with you. make sure your rates stay at the rate they are today. but politics on capitol hill are a little different. two years ago, president obama extended the bush tax cuts as part of the lame duck 2010 session. this was the first in the 2012 lame duck politics. obama's signalling to people on capitol hill, but laying out the stakes for that lame duck discussion this year. >> why not do that for which at least there can be agreement on. he or she who's making $261,000 a year is going to enjoy the bush tax cut for the first 250 of that. in other words, everybody would be a beneficiary in this scenario. >> you're committing the s
rogers chairs the house committee and is a former fbi agent and joins us from capitol hill. congressman, thank you for being with us. let's talk about the leaks and your concerns. do we have any indications that they could have come directly from the white house and that they could have been blessed by the president? >> you see, andrea, it's a whole panoply of leaks. it rises to the concern where you have even democrats raising questions about the origins of these leaks, and so we know a couple of things. the most damaging -- and i would argue, andrea, these are some of the most damaging leaks to our national security probably in my lifetime. serious, serious consequences. in some of the leaks it showed it had to have a high level of clearance, covert access to the information and access to the situation room and as a former fbi investigator that narrows that pull pretty closely. as we would say, that's a clue about where you can start looking for where these leaks could have originated. i think that's why all of the speculation both on democrats and republicans, it may have come out of

/cheney years, american's approval rating dropped by 20%, 30%, 40%, and that was people who like us. there was the start of two of the longest wars in american history. both of which were started by the bush administration, one of which was started under false pretenlss and both were raging when they left. it was the drowning of a great american city in hurricane katrina. remember mission accomplished? remember 9/11, torture, armstrong williams remember the presidential adviser caught shoplifting repeatedly from target. remember that guy? remember the vice president of the united states shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney.
18th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. yeah. i want to hear about that. wasp in the air. that's not a good day. we'll get to that. national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst john heilemann. like a wasp in your ear. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. >> good morning. >> how was your night with tiffany? >> tiffany amber thiessen, more on that later, she's great. great american. >> god. it's just not right. i'm serious. >> no telling what willie will or won't do after dark. >> that's a true statement, mike barnicle. we have some news to get to. >> we do. we do. you might just be be -- >> might be in that news. >> who spends an evening with tiffany when they do a show like this? but okay. >> willie geist. >> i want to hear about that. sounds like something people would want to hear in the morning. >> oh, my goodness. i'll tell you. after we do headlines. >> we'll do news and talk about mike's trip to the hospital. >> who? >> and a violent
was litigated in a general election, republicans picked up an historic number of seats in the u.s. house and made bigains in the u.s. senate. the cook political report says he believes a majority of the 87 gop freshmen elected in the 2010 shellacking are in good shape but he predicts no more than an eight seat gain for democrats. >> i believe what the american crossroads said is partially true. is it going to be sky-high, probably not. but there will be some mobilization on the republican side for or against, if you will, obamacare. let's be honest. the majority of the people that were for obamacare are voting for president obama and the folks against it clearly will vote for governor romney. the real question is, hopefully we'll ha this conversation, is whether or not health care is going to be a major issue for down ballot individuals that are running on state-wide offices come november. probably not. it most likely still will be the economy. we saw a recent poll that came out today that said 44% of americans still frankly do not understand what obamacare is and that's still not the nu
care. >> i care. >> legitimate baseball fans care, but it certainly is not as big a deal as it used to be because of interleague play. we see different players from different teams in both leagues all during the year. you can get any game you want on your baseball package on cable. doesn't have the same allure that it used to, certainly. >> yeah. mika. >> yeah. >> the battle over the bush tax cuts. >> here we go again. >> here we go. >> now it's -- because we were talking yesterday on the set in new york about the limit, the $250,000 limit. that could come back. it's growing over how much of the bush-era tax cuts to extend just for the middle class, or, perhaps, for the wealthiest americans as well. both candidates invoked the 42nd president bill clinton to frame their strategies yesterday. take a listen. >> i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs, is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. this is the sort of thing that used to be in the democratic party in the times past. bill clinton called
they'll both be wishing the u.s. olympic teams well. a little awkward, perhaps? >> i think jonathan is right, this is not the place for politics when you're attending the olympic ceremonies and you're on foreign soil. romney, of course, will be getting a lot of attention for his role in the olympics in 2002, which is generally a positive story for him. i think he'll be evoking a lot of those memories as he attends the olympics in london. i don't think michelle obama is going to take the occasion to beat him up for any of his other foreign policy or for his record on the olympics. i think this is going to be a moment of comity. and let's not forget that there's another reason for this trip for romney. he's going to be collecting a lot of checks as well. it's a big fund-raising trip for him as well overseas. >> that's right. some fund-raising going on there. thank you very much, molly ball and jonathan capehart, as always. >>> two survivors of the aurora movie theater shooting have been released from the hospital in colorado today, but there are still about 12 people in the hospital w
of hardship and uncertainty, you've seen the last few days some of the largest and most important u.s. companies report sagging profits, those who believe that the europe -- situation in europe would not directly affect u.s. companies are beginning to see they were more wrong than right. i think giving as much as you can to big companies, medi medium-sized and small companies around any and everything government will or won't do is critical. extending tax cuts for all americans going to solve all our fiscal cliff issues? no. short of congress being able to do something meaningful, sustainable they should probably extend the cuts for everyone and look forward to the beginning of next spring or next year deal with sequestration, long-term fiscal responsibility, sustainability, but short of that, i don't know how this gives any more certainty, any more comfort. as you've talked on the show many times in the past, to businesses across the nation. what concerns me, you see the front page of the newspapers, europe's crisis hits profits, rising food prices. american consumer and business lea
in toledo, ohio. he will be targeting working class men. the polls are showing us while he is doing well with women and some other groups, this is a group that seems to be wavering between president obama and mitt romney. a recent average, shows the president with less than a three-point lead within the margin of error. on the fourth o of july, he addressed military members saying we need more immigration laws that allow immigrants to stay, like the dream act. mitt romney was up in new hampshire. while he tried to shy away from politics officially, he has been wrapped up in this debate over whether or not he contradicted himself in his campaign over the health care mandate. is it a penalty? is it a tax? romney says the supreme court called it a tax, so it is a tax. his campaign said otherwise. will likely turn the focus back to the economy as new job numbers come out for june. lynn? >>> scientists at the large hadron collider have announced they have likely discovered the so-called god particle. it may explain how stars, planets, even life, how these things were created and held together
loved him so bad in berlin. he also visited iraq, where he met with the prime minister and top u.s. military commanders in baghdad. and he went to afghanistan where he met with american nato troops and with afghan president karzai, and called for more troops, more focus on the war in afghanistan. for those of you keeping track at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut
in the first price. but you know what? mcconnell explains that whole thing to us, too. in january 2011, he gave an interview to the atlantic in which he said we worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off these proposals because we thought that the only way the american people would know a great debate was going on was if the measures were not bipartisan. you know what? mcconnell was correct. i think that's one of the most profound things anyone has said about politics. what he understood is what makes a bill bipartisan is not the ideas in it or the spirit in which it is offered. it's whether any legislatures from the other party sign on. if they do, by definition, the bill is partisan. so by keeping his members off thedemocrats' major bills, he made each and every one of those pieces of legislation into a partisan bill and destroyed the president's hope for image as a bipartisan compromiser. this week on fox news, mcconnell gave another remarkably honest interview. they have been saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace, but they haven't come together behind anything that would replace
will get the economy going and finally get us on track to a balanced budget. >> reporter: jennifer johnson, nbc news, washington. >>> last night on "hardball", new york senator chuck schumer said when it comes to digging out of our economic hole, the democrats' tax plan is both politically and practically the right way to go. >> everyone knows the economy is slowly -- all too slowly making progress. i think people understand that and live with it, and i don't think they blame president obama. they want to know how you get us out of this problem. and the way to get us out of this problem, the way the democrats prescribe it, is a lot different than the way the republicans prescribe it. we believe in focusing on the middle class. they believe on focusing on the most well-to-do. that's a winner for us, but it's the right policy for america, most importantly of all. >> each night, chris plays hardball with some of the nation's most prominent politicians and news makers. be sure to watch "hardball with chris matthews" 5:00 and 7:00 eastern on msnbc. >>> here's your first look at some of the othe
and humility who have called injustice by its name. for every one of us, a particular person comes to mind. someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. for me that man is my father, george romney. it wasn't just that my dad helped write the civil rights provision for the michigan constitution, though he did. it wasn't just that he helped create michigan's first civil rights commission or that as governor he marched for civil rights on the streets of detroit. though he did those things, too. more than these acts, it was the kind of man he was and the way he dealt with every person, black or white. he was a man of the fairest instincts and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of god. i'm grateful to him for so many things and, above all, for the knowledge of god. whose ways are not always our ways but whose justice is certain and whose mercy endures forever. every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours. without dependence on god, dr. king said, our efforts turn to ashes and our sunrises in the darkest night. unles
